Maternity Services

Our dedication to expectant mothers begins at the very start of life itself. Led by our team of friendly and experienced consultants in the areas of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Paediatrics, the maternity services team at KL Women Specialist is committed in providing safe and quality care to all patients.

Our highly skilled and experienced nurses are specially trained in neonatal care, midwifery and lactation to provide optimum care for your newborn lovely baby.


With our recently acquired state of the art 4D ultrasound equipment, we are able to make the best assessment and diagnosis of all obstetrical assessments as well as gynecological diagnoses. This equipment provides unique information in the treatment and diagnosis of obstetrical and gynecological concerns.


First described by Stein Leventhal in 1935, PCOS is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It is a syndrome-collection of signs and symptons, therefore the clinical presentations can be highly variable. Some of the clinical syndromes include:


  • Irregular menses
  • Hyperandrogenism
  • Insulin Resistance and Obesity
  • Infertility
  • Long term consequences

It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. If it isn’t treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.


Ultrasound has been used in obstetrics for more than thirty years. Evidence suggests there are no harmful effects on the human fetus. Most importantly, the ultrasound baby scan should only be used when there is an indication and that the fetus should be exposed to a pregnancy scan for the shortest duration of time as possible.

Early Pregnancy scan

(6-10 weeks gestation)
An early pregnancy scan is usually done soon after a woman knows that she is pregnant. The baby scan is done to confirm that the woman is pregnant and that the pregnancy is inside the womb(intra-uterine pregnancy) and not outside the womb(ectopic pregnancy) and to diagnose if a miscarriage has occurred. It is performed to confirm that the fetus, if already formed, is viable and has a heart beat and to estimate the gestational age of the fetus. Multiple fetuses can sometimes be diagnosed at this scan.

Nuchal Thickness scan

(11-14 weeks gestation)
The nuchal scan is done to assess the risk of Down’s Syndrome by measuring the thickness of the fat pad behind the fetus neck and to identify the nasal bone. Major fetal abnormalities can be detected during the scan.

Detailed Anomaly Scan

(18-23 weeks gestation)
The detailed baby scan is performed to determine if the fetal structures are normal and to identify fetal abnormalities, in particular, in the fetal brain, spine, heart, gut and limbs.The position of the placenta is determined accurately during the scan.

Fetal Growth and Health scan

(26 weeks gestation onwards)
The scans for the rest of the pregnancy is concerned in assessing fetal growth and well-being and ensuring the fetus is developing normally and healthily.
Doppler assessment of fetal vessels may be needed if there is cause for concern regarding fetal growth and well-being.
Newer technology with 3D/4D baby scans allow accurate visualisation of the fetal face and fetal spine.
